My Experience at Marketing Eye

After just completing my first year of university studying media and communications, I didn’t know the first thing about what the world of marketing involved. Having only ever taken two advertising classes, I knew almost nothing about what a marketing firm did let alone how they operated in the industry. That was until I found myself scrolling through Indeed.com, trying to find a way to fill in my time over the next three months. At a time when every second person was trying to find a job or internship, restless after the abundance of lockdowns we endured in 2021, every opportunity I was either turned down or was one in 500 applicants. Marketing Eye was no different, an application I thought I would never hear back from. Or so that’s what I thought. 12 weeks later I am left to reflect on my time working as a Marketing Eye Intern learning from and working alongside a team of dedicated, passionate, and hardworking marketing executives.

Many don't start in the mail room or doing photocopying anymore, but at an entry level there is plenty of mundane tasks that can often bury our enthusiasm for the career that you are by this point indebted to through your university degree.
